5 hair products you should always have in your handbag

If you want to have great hair all day, every day, or do any touch-ups before a date without having to make a stop at home, then make sure that the below 5 items are in your handbag at all times:

A mini hairbrush

If there's one product you should always have in your handbag at all times in case of a hair emergency, it's a mini hairbrush or retractable comb. If you need to fix your hairstyle after any blustery winds or a surprise rain shower, a brush or a comb will not only be more elegant than using your fingers, it will get the job done a whole lot better.

Bobby pins and a few hair elastics

Whether or not you use bobby pins or hair elastics on a daily basis, you will be very happy to have them in your bag when your hair ties breaks on the one day you decide to wear a high ponytail, or when you need to pin back any unruly strands of hair that won't stay in place before an important meeting. However just remember that like socks and pens, these hair accessories go missing often, so make sure you toss extras in your bag on a regular basis!

Travel-sized hairspray

If you're ever having a particularly bad hair day, L'Oréal Professionnel's Tecni.ART Compressed Air Fix hairspray or Tecni.ART Fix Anti-Frizz hairspray will be your saving grace. They're concentrated compact versions of the original Tecni.ART Air Fix and Fix Anti-Frizz hairsprays (they contain just as much hairspray, but in smaller cans). You'll be able to pull off a last minute emergency hairstyle that will not only look great, but will stay in place.

A headband

Don't worry, we're not suggesting that you to keep your favorite jeweled headband or flower crown in your bag – a thin, very basic headband is great to have on hand at all times, so that you can push any unruly strands of hair back or keep your bangs – that desperately need to be cut - out of your eyes.

A small hair serum

Hair serum will help tame flyaways and also hydrate your hair if it ever feels dry. It can also add instant shine to any hairstyle, perfect for right before a date when you want to look your very best.
